The Legend of Sarila

La Légende de Sarila

In the far north, an Inuit people lives happily and peacefully. Until suddenly, there is a famine because all the deer seem to have disappeared. Even the best hunters come back from hunting empty-handed. What has happened? Where are all the animals gone? The reason is related to shaman Croolik, who has got involved with evil spirits in order to strengthen his power. He considers Markussi, a young hunter who - without knowing it - has magical powers, his competitor. As the people’s hunger becomes intolerable, the wise woman Saya recalls the legend of Sarila, a beautiful, fertile land, which is hidden behind the many glaciers and home of Goddess Sedna. Only she can help the Inuit. Croolik and his insidious crow Kwatak choose three young people "pure in heart" to ask advice from Sedna: Markussi, Poutulik, the chief’s son, and Apik, his fiancée. With their sleighs, accompanied by a small lemming, they set out for a long, dangerous journey through ice and snow towards the country of Sarila. On their way, they do not only have to fight against the forces of nature, but also against the evil spirits of Croolik who wishes more than anything else that Poutulik, Apik and especially Markussi never return.
